Introduction: DIY Candy Jewelry, a Cool and Easy Gift Idea to Make Her Happy.
New Year is over and it's time to loose some weight. Here's a little idea on how to use the candies you won't eat for the next few weeks. These original earrings and necklaces were Christmas presents for my sisters.
Step 1: What You Need
- Clear nail varnish
- Cheap jewels
- Hard candies
- Epoxy glue
- Stick (something to mix the glue)
- Wax paper
Step 2: Apply Varnish (many Times)
Apply a first layer of varnish on the candies. Let them dry on the wax paper during 30 minutes. Repeat 3 to 6 times until the layer is about 1mm thick. This process can take several hours... so do it while watching a movie.
Step 3: Make Some Epoxy Glue
Squeeze a little bit of glue from both syringe on a clean surface. The mix have to be 50-50 (the same quantity of both liquids).
Step 4: MIX
Use a stick to merge the epoxy mix. Make sure to have a uniform substance. If you have a 5 minutes epoxy, you will have to apply it fast because it will soon become very hard.
Step 5: Apply Epoxy
Use the tip of the stick to glue the candy to the original jewel. Some soft candies like Gummy Bears can be entirely covered with epoxy to protect them.
Step 6: Let Them DRY
You can pin the earrings into something soft, like a sponge, to let them dry. For bigger candies, use a piece of wax paper. Let everything dry for a night.
Step 7: Pack
Find a nice little box or make one. I won't tell you how to make a box...
Step 8: Give
Choose someone you love.
